The Nintendo Famicom 8-Bit Mini Console looks to offer consumers an experience that makes them feel as though they have been transported back in time to 1983 when the original Nintendo console launched.
The new console from Nintendo will feature 30 built-in games that are capable of being played via the wired controllers and the console that connects to your TV via HDMI.
Nintendo came under fire previously for the Wii U console, which was thought of by some as a weak followup to the wildly successful Wii. The brand has taken the criticism seriously by not only announcing the Mario Run game for iOS devices, but also the Nintendo NX console that is purported to be unveiled sometime later this year or early next.
The Nintendo Famicom 8-Bit Mini Console will retail in Japan for ¥5980 starting on November 10th, 2016.
